Great value and service

On first arrival without a booking we were shown to a nice table in a very bustling and busy restaurant for a Monday night.

The service was very great, fast and polite. The food was very good. But the price was quite high. $101.00 for two people with one drink and a pop. No appetizer or desert.

We just returned from a visit to the Keg. I ordered a shrimp cocktail and an 8 ounce sirloin with baked potato. My colleague ordered an 8 ounce sirloin with baked potato. My shrimp came and the smell was horrible. They were, as the waitress admitted, very bad. We returned those. My steak ordered well done came and it was... More

We chose the Keg to treat our granddaughter and her fiance to dinner between games of the Men's World Curling Championships in Halifax. It had been quite a few years since we had eaten at this particular restaurant but did eat at one in Ontario last Sept. We had made a reservation so didn't have much of a wait at... More

After at least a decade of hearing about The Keg last night was the first time we have eaten there and we were very impressed. Decor is intimate and cozy but not cramped. Food was very good. Our waiter Chris was superb; attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The whole experience was excellent and we would definitely go again and highly... More

With some food chains, I find the food can taste packaged but this is not the case with the Keg. We had calamari as well as a baked Brie to start. Delicious and I enjoyed the dipping sauces included with both. The steak was cooked to perfection and you can't say that about all restaurants ! With the appetizers and... More

The Keg has been a well liked downtown eatery for near 35 years. We were in Moncton in the Summer 2013 and we ate at their Keg. It was a terrible meal. Food, service and ambiance were awful. My last visit to the Keg Halifax was at least six years ago. Having a KEG gift card for 15 months sitting... More

The Keg is one of our "usual" spots for date night. The food and service is always consistent. Yes, you will probably have to wait a while if you show up on a Friday or Saturday night. It's a popular spot and they can only accommodate so many people at one. Last weekend we waited an hour for a table.... More

Too bad you have to wait so long for a table, People do, however, and it is because the Keg is consistently good.If your steak is not done the way you like it,no problem in having it done to your satisfaction.Caesar salad very good and deserts excellent. A bit pricey but as they say, "You get what you pay for... More

What does $31 get you... not much, a dried out, overcooked piece of salmon and a plop of tasteless ,mashed potatoes. Never saw the brussels sprouts that were on the menu. Seriously, $31 ???? Unbelievable that we stood in a line up outside on a cold weekend night to be gouged!!! (they don't take reservations... Never again!!! Overpriced and under... More
